could it be that your oil filter housing wasn't fully tight when it was last serviced and so is weeping a little oil

Me I'd say get under it with a couple of rags and wipe it all away etc then look back after a day and you should be able to see where its coming from........hopefully!

Just wipe everywhere you can see / reach and go from there.
